In the 3D platformer Crumble, you play as a rolling ball with a smiley face and a loose tongue. It sounds ridiculous and it is but it's also good fun.

While I quite enjoyed what was there it does have a few issues. Notably the camera is a bit annoying, it would be useful if it had a follow mode where the camera always pointed in the direction your moving towards.

Very promising, when it's more polished it could be a seriously amusing 3D platformer.

At release their plan is to include a full campaign mode with a world that's "increasingly crumbling", a multiplayer party mode for up to 4 local players, a skin unlock system and online leaderboards.
